“For schools in Delhi, we had decided not to conduct examinations for classes 9th and 11th and promote them based on other evaluation parameters,” Sisodia stated.
“We requested the Central government to follow the same pattern for the CBSE board exams in the national capital and it is finally happening,” he added.
The minister mentioned that the universities may face the challenge of conducting the practicals or lab research works.
“Keeping this mind, the Delhi government believes there is no point conducting university examination for a semester where no studies took place,” he said.
Education minister has mentioned that students who got jobs can take their degree certificates to start their work.
“Extraordinary times like these call for extraordinary measures,” Sisodia said quoting chief minister Arvind Kejriwal.
Delhi has several state universities such as Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, Ambedkar University, Delhi Technological University, Indira Gandhi Delhi Technical University for Women (IGDTUW), Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology, National Law University Delhi, among others.
University Grants Commission (UGC) on Monday announced that the final year examinations for all the state universities will be conducted in September.
“Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal will write a letter to the Prime Minister requesting him to cancel exams for students across all central universities as well,” he said.
